Dear Theatre Lovers,
Tuesday December 3, 2019 is a very special day! Millions of people in Canada and around the world will join together and contribute to their favourite causes on an international day of giving. We have a special request this Giving Tuesday – we hope you will consider donating to support Odyssey Theatre’s Community Neighbours Program and help us share the magic and power of live theatre with deserving members of our community.
At Odyssey, we believe theatre is meant to be experienced by all.
We launched the Community Neighbours program because we wanted to give back to our community and provide access to the performing arts to many who would otherwise be unable to attend our Theatre Under the Stars. Last year we partnered with 20 social and community organizations to provide the experience of live theatre to people who might otherwise be restricted from attending our productions, including individuals living in vulnerable living situations, at-risk youth, and new Canadians. We also held Ottawa’s only American Sign Language interpreted summer performance for the deaf and hearing impaired. We were proud to welcome close to 400 people to experience the magic of Theatre Under the Stars, many for the very first time. On this global day of giving, you can #PLAYitForward and help us reach our goal of raising $3,000 to continue this important program for many years to come. Your donation, no matter how small, will make a significant impact. TODAY on Giving Tuesday only:
- Your contribution will be doubled by an anonymous friend of Odyssey – your dollar becomes two!
- You will be entered in a draw to win TWO free tickets to Odyssey’s 2020 production under the stars – our 35th anniversary season!
- Contributions over $25 submitted through Canada Helps on December 3 will complemented with an additional $5 from Canada Helps to our campaign!
Thank you for helping us #PLAYitForward. And for helping us share the magic of live theatre with others in our community.
